We need to reinvent urban spaces to live in harmony with the planet 

Travel is about visiting someplace exotic, we’re told. Somewhere that looks, feels and tastes different, in a way that stirs our heart and stimulates our senses. But sit in the central business district of any global city today, and chances are it will look basically the same.

It’s on a quaint little corner in the village of Bangalow. With a light and bright atmosphere, Corner Cartel is a New Mexican and Latin food restaurant, offering inside, al fresco and takeaway dining.

Don’t be fooled into thinking it is simply Mexican fare. Yes, it has delicious tacos, guacamole and margaritas, but the menu also has a large Latin American slant, with a strong nod to Argentine flavours. With a well-rounded menu, share plate in style, it offers delicious small plates such as oysters with a mezcal vinaigrette, empanadas with chimichurri, ceviche and char-grilled octopus with chorizo. Some people may be surprised by a lack of spice in some meals, but for those who know Latin American cooking, it’s not all jalapeños and chilli. Corner Cartel have a great mix of these Latin cultures across their menu.

The Argentine chefs are expert at cooking over coals (las brazos) with larger meals for two, like lamb shoulder with salsa verde and potatoes, and melt-in-the-mouth half chicken with roasted lemon and peppers. It is simple cooking done so well that you can’t quite work out where the flavours are bursting from.

Corner Cartel caters for all dietary types with a large selection of gluten free and dairy free options, along with a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. They also offer a kids menu to suit even the fussiest of little eaters, with quesadillas, tacos and simple options like chicken and rice or guacamole and corn chips.

It’s worth getting there early for happy hour, or discount offers before 5.30pm for kids meals. It will also give you the opportunity to try some of the amazing cocktails on offer!

A fully licensed new restaurant with a large cocktail list, good wines and great service, Corner Cartel ticks all the boxes for the whole family or a more intimate evening.

Opening hours:
Wed to Sun, breakfast/ brunch menu 8–11.30am; Lunch, 11.45am–2.30pm.
Tues to Sat, dinner menu 5–8pm; Tues to Fri, happy hour/light meal menu 4.30–5.30pm.
Saturday, bar menu 2.30–5pm.
Takeaway available in lunch and dinner hours.
Menus available online.
